'Drawing' is often seen simply as a means to another end (a sketch for a painting or sculpture or a just a 'doodle'), and I think they are often overlooked. I wanted celebrate and feature 'drawings' as artefacts in themselves. As well as this, I have included artists who nudge the definition of 'drawing' beyond a narrow definition of 'marks made on paper' . This exhibition features drawings on paper, but also includes drawings with textiles, drawings with chopsticks, performance and video.
From Matilda Michell's 'invented figure drawings' (the simplicity of which belie rigorous study of the human form that is required to 'invent'), to Pamela Leung's installation of chopsticks that create a cacophony of 'drawn' lines, Drawn Out features a myriad of approaches to the art of drawing.
